Do you have an entrepreneurial itch, love HR and have a passion for sales?

This is a unique opportunity for an experienced, entrepreneurial, director- calibre individual, with a passion for working with mid-tier businesses and understanding the value that great HR can add.

Earnings stated are achievable over time with commission.
